Re: [IPk] pumps and dangerous sports



I'm not sure about all this dangerous sports stuff - it sounds a bit risky
to me.!!! (I'm recently into gliding myself - nice and safe 2000ft up and no
engine!!)

MiniMed have recently introduced a sports harness, this is worn like a (very
small) rucksack, under the clothing. This means the pump is held in the
small of the back, but only in a soft pouch. This is probably not much help
for this wierd football game where you are liable to be thumped everywhere
it seems, but may be of use for other active sports where strong body
contact is not likely.

Any ONE person who would like to try it should just give me a call.

Best Regards

Ray Morrissey
